REVIEW: LA Splash Lip Couture Liquid Lipsticks!

Hey! Today I have a review for you as promised on the LA Splash Lip Couture liquid lipsticks. I picked these up just over a week or two ago now and I thought I'd share my thoughts and feelings on them. LA Splash (from what I can gather) is an American brand that has recently hit the UK. Though I believe they make multiple products as a company, it is mainly their lip products that are taking the makeup community by storm and I have 3 of them to show you in this post. 


Packaging:
I like the packaging of these lipsticks quite a lot - firstly, the fact that it's see-through makes it a lot easier to know what shade I'm going for without having to read it's name. It's also handy for knowing how much of them I actually have left which is always nice! The design is simple and sophisticated - something I always appreciate in packaging.



Colour and Pigmentation:

The pigmentation of these lipsticks is AMAZING - that's something I have to put straight out there. In one to two applications, you have completely opaque coverage which I find really impressive. The colour payoff is also very intense - these are truly pigmented lipsticks. This brand makes a lot of really unique, beautiful shades that you're not going to find in the drugstore - from true blue-toned purples to blues and blacks, there's a great selection of alternative colours as well as more wearable, everyday ones too. There's something for everyone in the colour variation of this product.


The colours that I currently own are Vindictive - a kind of blue-grey shade - something I've never really seen before in a lipstick and one I was particularly excited to own, Criminal - a very bright, pink/red-toned purple & Poison Apple - a beautiful cherry red.

Application and Wear:

As stated before, these are really pigmented lip products and all the shades I own are opaque in around 2 applications. Vindictive however could probably be opaque in one application and is definitely the thicker in formula of the three. On the lips, they glide on smoothly and feel comfortable to wear. Like most liquid lipsticks, these do dry matte but these however retain that creamy look to them which I like. Being a matte lipstick, they will accentuate the lines on your lips but in all honestly, that doesn't really bother me because well, that's natural!


In terms of wear time, these lipsticks are very long lasting. They last for a good 6-8 hours at least but will start to wear slightly in the inner portion of the mouth - particularly if you're eating or drinking. Even then though, it's barely noticeable and they do leave that kind of 'stain' effect on the lips and so it's not going to look very obvious that it's wearing. These lipsticks don't 'crumble' like some liquid formulas can but if you really pile on the lipstick, they possibly could. It's easy enough to re-apply in the areas you need it and it still feels comfortable on the lips when you do. 


A lot of people comment on the staying power of these liquids - specifically when showing you how difficult it is to actually remove them when trying to wash if off the lips. As impressive as that definitely is, it may be worrying to you that it will be impossible to get this product off.
Don't worry though, with a cream or oil based cleanser, these come off easily enough without leaving your lips sore or irritated. Their staying power is more so applicable to contact with water which won't be enough to remove them!

Overall, I am really, really impressed with these lipsticks and I can definitely say I'm excited about this brand. I'll definitely be getting some more of these - when they're in stock that is as after hitting the UK, a lot of them are out of stock now! I love the colour selection and performance of these lipsticks and I'd recommend them completely. I picked up these lipsticks from the website Love-Makeup but you can also get them in the UK from Cocktail Cosmetics, too!
